|feverdreams - surrounding [csr057] - feverdreams|
"Feverdreams is dark and mysterious. A rumbling and shimmering miasma of soothing low end, staticky buzz, and occasional clatter and skree. Gorgeous slow building soundscapes with subtle non-repeating rhythms and with layers and layers of drone, whir, throb, and clang. This would be nightmare music if it wasn't so damn pretty." - Aquarius Records (S.F.) review of an earlier release. As always the goal with this release is the search for new sounds and the collage of those sounds...

|Flavia & The Motonets - El Amigo de los Niños [csr022] - Flavia & The Motonets|
Flavia & the Motonets have worked it all out. Armchairs are soft, yes. But we won't stay anywhere. We'll travel. Today we don't want to have control of anything. We get carried away. Butterflies, bus drivers, small fish, fruit, tomato men, kids & friends will take us to a colourful world, jumping to one cloud to the other, with graceful, harmonic and floating movements. A simple world with happy endings but not a stupid world...

|FortyOne - Different Mayonnaise [csr007] - FortyOne|
I love to make this music, which is why I made this music. Old records (for the most part children's) found in thrift stores, yard sales and flea markets were the main source of the material along with public domain drum loops, Internet WAV sites, TV shows and movies and much more. No drum machines, fancy samplers or sequencers were used on this project. Not one shred of original instrumentation, just 100% samples recorded with a basic PC microphone strategically placed up against my stereo spea...

|Fortyone (swingin' single) [csr516] - Fortyone|
I was in-between albums and feeling a little frisky so I decided to do some sort of something with all the Comfortstand material that had been released to date (at the time of the creation of these recordings the catalog was up to 26 albums and 6 singles). What I wound up doing (all in one night) was choosing one song, pretty much completely at random although the track length and titles influenced my decisions somewhat (I was more apt to choose the shortest tracks and track titles I liked), fro...

|Fortyone - Music That's Better Than It Sounds [csr041] - Fortyone|
Welcome to Music That's Better Than It Sounds. Honestly. This is new art from old art. 100% Samples. And futhermore; I have a PC microphone propped up to one of the speakers of my stereo, into which I have a Raidoshack Optimus SSM-1750 mixer hooked, and into the mixer I have two Technics turntables and a Panasonic REAL 3DO video game system (which functions as a CD player) hooked, and speaking of hooked I'm just that to making this music...

|Fortyone - Fortyfive [csr056] - Fortyone|
All tracks written by Fortyone Artwork by Fortyone & Fortyfour Thanks to the family and the 45's "I wish to announce that... How did a vintage jazz/blues collector get involved with Fortyone?" Well, a little more than a year ago, I was poking around on the Web, looking for unusual old sounds to download (Im especially interested in material from the 78 RPM era.). I stumbled upon the Comfort Stand site, and was delighted by Fortyones Different Mayonnaise album his choice of sampled sounds made me...

|Full Load of King - FLOP [csr059] - Full Load of King|
Struggling in the dark, hands felt along the battery searching for terminals. It wasnt much of a leap from concept to voltage; eventually each index finger reached an opposing pole. The current kicked in and lit up the temporal lobe from the inside out. Sounds melting inside a rambling shack of hallucination FLOP is the second installment of The Noise Trilogy. When burning a CD of the entire release, make sure that there are no pauses between tracks...

|Full Load Of King - Normal [csr058] - Full Load Of King|
OK! Enough with the noise already. Full Load of King has plugged in, tuned up, and FLOPed out. Bubbly synthesizers have been pushed aside by pesky guitars; drum machines have (mostly) been replaced by heavy breathing and sweat. 'Normal' is the product (again) of one pair of hands. Pop FLOK! POP FLOK!! For more info/abuse: firstname.lastname@example.org Check out more information about this album on its Comfort Stand release page.

|Full Load of King - Alphabet Of Desire (Dream Disc Edit) [csr045] - Full Load of King|
"...amoebas the size of Chevettes rise through phosphorescent pools, screaming as they meet the daylight. Mandibles reach through manholes grabbing at passing, tepid flesh. Strange bird and animal calls fill the sky, the air digs through you..." "Alphabet of Desire (Dream Disc)" was meant to be the soundtrack to a nightmare, but it somehow came out cuddlier. It follows the shape of a night's (lack of?) sleep...

|Full Load of King - Elevator to the Gallows [csr064] - Full Load of King|
Elevator was originally released on cassette in 1996, and was lovingly re-mastered in 2005 to bring forth all of its glory. Each original cassette side was performed as a live mix with the basic noise pieces and segues being mixed on the spot with tape loops and other live instruments directly to DAT. Elevator to the Gallows was the first installment in Full Load of Kings Noise Trilogy to be recorded, but is the last to be released on Comfort Stand...
